28 October 2014 - Neighbourhood Partnerships - Making it happen
The Neighbourhood Partnership’s local community plans 2014-17 are now available.

Thank you to everyone who gave their views to the Neighbourhood Partnerships, attended an event and completed a survey. All the feedback gathered has been used to identify priorities to inform the new local community plans. The priorities in the plans cover a range of themes including health, transport, environment, community safety, children and older people.

Neighbourhood Partnerships bring together the community, Police, Health, Fire, voluntary sector and elected members, supported by officers from the Council. Working together, Neighbourhood Partnerships aim to tackle the issues that matter locally and make neighbourhoods a better place to live.

The South Central Neighbourhood Partnership local community plan 2014-17 is now available to view online at Hard copies are also available from local libraries or neighbourhood offices.

To get involved in your local Neighbourhood Partnership visit one of our events, attend a Neighbourhood Partnership meeting or talk to us face to face in a local neighbourhood office. You can also contact us online - tweet us your thoughts @Edin_NPs or send us an email –
